Article Modal




Article Modal.png

Something new just "popped up" at daily.dev!

When you click on a card in one of the feeds to comment, we will now show you our new article modal, instead of a new page!

This makes using our app even quicker.

But waitโ€ฆthere is more!

We have introduced next and previous article buttons, coupled with left and right arrow key navigation! (or j and k)

We also made the UI far more intuitive with a nice big "read article" button once you have read the TLDR, comments etc. and decide this article is worth a read!

Faster, easier to use and prettier! ๐Ÿคฉ

Reputation update! ๐ŸŒŸ




"Reputation Updated" Ido Shamun in a dark card with a pink border, card contains text "Reputation 1379"

They say reputation is everythingโ€ฆand we couldn't agree more!

That is why we have overhauled our reputation points system to encourage more contributions and interaction from our community!

All of your hard-earned reputation points will be recalculated to match our new scoring and we even introduced a couple of new ways to earn those much coveted reputation points on daily.dev!

Find out what has changed and the new scoring in the daily.dev docs!

Preview your comments ๐Ÿ”Ž

Whether it is some kind words, a witty response or a masterful meme, you can now ensure that your markdown displays as expected in comments on daily.dev. ๐Ÿ”ฅ

When writing a comment you will now see two tabs, a "write" tab and a "preview" tab, write in the "write" tab and then select the "preview" tab to make sure your well crafted response displays correctly before posting!

@Mention other people ๐Ÿ’ฌ
